are ready for a change. big word obama used last time. he was going to cut the deficit in half, increase jobs, we have a little bit of job growth. i don't always credit washington for that. i do credit the states and localities for that. but certainly the deficit's getting out of control and i think people are worried about their future generations being strapped with that. surely governor romney's been in ohio probably just as much as the president. they're hitting us quite a bit. people had a chance to listen what he had to say and trust in it. >> mayor coleman, you're mayor of columbus, ohio. the biggest city. how is the economy? it's coming down in this election to not only the future for other generations but also the economic picture in specific areas of the country. how is the economy in columbus right now? >> the economy in columbus is vastly improving. in fact, we're leading the way for the rest of the state. our unemployment rate is 5.7%. still, we have much more to go. we're the lowest unemployment rate in the entire state. frankly, it is the work of the locality, it is the wo
jobs. he said he would cut the deficit in half but it doubled. he said he would get unemployment to 5.2 percent and today it ticked up to 7.9 percent. that is 9 million jobs short 789 those are real americans. can't find work. 23 million in work can't find work or work that is up to their needs. this is a critical time. the president was a president who took office with the economy as the number one challenge and he has high are unemployment today than when he took office. think of that. the president of the united states presides over a nation under his leadership where unemployment is higher than the day he took office. he said he would save social security and medicare because they were headed to insolvency. instead, he made no effort to save either and he took $716 billion from medicare to pay for obamacare. and he said he was going do lower the cost of your health insurance by $2,500 a family by now. instead it has gone up by $3,000 a family. gasoline prices are also up by $2,000 a family. of course, he said he would work across the aisle on the most important issues america face
, and president bush cut taxes and we went from having a surplus to having a deficit. so i think there's -- i mean if you look at the tax policy center they basically said it's very hard to see evidence of exactly how raising taxes figures into all of this. >> several things. i was talking about president bush 41 in 1990 when they raised taxes, and it was supposed to help us reduce the deficit, in fact, congress just spent all the money that came in. when poll significances raise taxes, whether it's in california, we've seen the devastation there. illinois, we've seen the damage to that economy, maryland. when politicians raise taxes instead of cutting spending, you have lousy economic growth. those states, and you can compare either the reagan recovery, lower taxes, spending restraints, less regulation versus the very weak obama economy, wore where he did all the opposite things of reagan and got everything that an economist would tell you gets bad in an economy. let's compare state by state. california versus texas. illinois versus florida. you cut taxes you get more growth. you raise taxes you
to help the middle class. [applause] we know what is going to grow jobs, reduce the deficit. and let me tell you, what governor romney is offering eight it. it is not it. giving more power back to the biggest banks is not changed. leaving millions without health insurance, that is not changed. . a another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy, that is not change. [applause] refusing to answer questions about the details of your policies -- not change. rolling out a compromise by pledging the tea party's agenda, us. good luck to you. guest: thank you. host: a want to point to an editorial in bloomberg. that cannot from michael bloomberg, the mayor of new york. he writes that he votes for president to lead on climate change. he says the climate is changing how the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in new york city may or may not be the result it should compel all elected leaders to take action. governor bloomberg rates we need leadership from the white house. president obama has taken major steps to reduce our current consumption, including higher fuel efficiency stand
trying to help with the deficit, and then john boehner, and they turn around and stop that. they stopped the transportation bill. he has tried time and time again with norquist and all these pledges that they made. that tea party would not work with president obama. i hope when he is reelected, he will not be up for reelection again and they will not be able to work with him. host: here are some more tweets -- a couple of e-mails -- that is mike from california. nancy from texas says -- front page of "the financial times" has the picture that a lot of folks have in their papers this morning. al in indiana on are democrats' line, good morning. caller: good morning. i believe that you can add to that question and put on a few more words. you look at who the president had to reach across the aisle to. i go back to one of president obama's addresses to congress when congressman wilson from california shouted out in front of a live audience on tv, "you lie." i think that is indicative of where this republican party is. the entire country is being held hostage because of the republican party's
a little more, so we could reduce the deficit and still make investments in things like education, train, science, research. and guess what? plenty of folks running for congress at the time said it would hurt the economy. that it would kill jobs. and if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates back then happens to be running for president right now. and it turns out, their math was just as bad back then as it is today because, by the end of bill clin totoclinton's turn am created 23 million jobs. the biggest surplus in our history. wisconsin we know the ideas that work. we also know the ideas that don't work. because in the eight years after bill clinton left office his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax cuts they didn't need, and that we couldn't afford. companies enjoyed tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas, insurance companies, oil companies, wall street given free license do what they pleased. folks, at the top got to play by a different set of rules than the rest of us. and result of this top-down economics was falling incomes, record deficits, s
, it is our deficit. it is $16.20 trillion today. at the first debate it was $16 trillion. i agree with heidi, we cannot have partisan politics. the way we saw this is we have a budget. the senate has not had a budget for three years. that is where the partisanship come said. if we are on to solve a small business problem, the first step is you need a budget. harry reid has refused to bring a budget up for three years. we cannot solve this budget problem that alone ballots at if we cannot have the senate majority leader, to my opponent has endorsed to try to work out a solution. this is the most critical thing, and here is how we saw that -- number 1, we need a budget that comes to closure so people can see we are going to ballots at. we need stability in taxes and regulations, and number 4 we need an energy policy like we have done in north dakota. if we support energy, we can reignite america's engine, at the energy independence, national security, job security, and that is what we need to do. >> is interesting what congressman berg says. if you look at the time he served in the legislature
the federal deficit in half and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learn that it's 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. >> joe biden responded to romney this way today. >> called it territorial tax. it's the bain way. it means if you're going to build a factory you go find -- this is the fact. you go find a currentory with the lowest tax rate and the cheapest wages. build it there, pay those taxes and you never have to pay a penny in tax in the profit you make when you bring them back home. why would anybody build -- why would anybody build a factory here? ladies and gentlemen, the experts point out, that new territorial tax will create 800,000 jobs. all of them abroad. i'm not making up, all of them abroad. 800,000. i found it fascinating at their convention when governor romney said the first thing i will do when i'm elected president, i will take a jobs tour. it's going to have to be a foreign trip. >> joining me now ezra klein and eugene robinson. it was a strong week for the conspiracy theoryists
of repress on illegal guns, tax reform, job creation and deficit reduction. in fact, interestingly, he is somewhat critical of president obama on gun-control and you are very well positioned to talk about this issue, as your last book is called "glock." talk about this issue of gun control. >> well, i mean, you accurately point out the major's endorsement of president obama for re-election was a qualified endorsement. it was not an enthusiastic across the board the mayor said he was very disappointed in presidentn aa number of issues but overall, he strongly favors enough for romney. one of the issues in which he and a number of other people who are advocates of stiffer gun control are disappointed is the fact president obama, since his been in office, his release that on his hands in connection with the debate have any do the regulation of gun ownership and the marketing of guns in this country. similar, i think, to the calculation limate, is a a political calculation. the president decided not to spend political capital fighting to stiffen federal regulation of guns. you can debate w
; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >>> as you well know, the election is so close, a handful of votes could decide who wins the white house. according to the brennan center for justice, 14 states have laws restricting voter registration drive, early voting, forcing some voters to show an idea. those 14 states are worth 185 electoral votes, 68% of what's needed to win. so, is voting fraud a big problem? will what i just said affect the election? nicole austin hilary joins us from washington this morning. good morning. >> good morning, carol. >> let's talk about these new laws put in place in many states across the nation. how will t
. it is the deficit, it is the debt. on all of those issues governor romney does enjoy a lead. so i think you combine that with the intensity gap. i think governor romney has momentum still. martha: it will was fascinating night. we'll talk to you before then. then i want to get your actual picks on the record. >> dangerous. martha: thanks to you for that, doug. bill: we like dangerous. martha: yeah, you bet. bill: there are brand new details on top secret communication showing exactly how much the white house knew about the security matter in benghazi, libya. we'll show that to you. details on that. a sloggy slog getting the city back on its feet. we're back to lower manhattan for the latest martha: we're just getting a look at connecticut that the is still reeling, that city, that state i should say, from sandy. nearly 400,000 homes and businesses remain without power. the superstorm's wind toppled trees and power lines. there is new london, connecticut on the screen. the state's largest electric company says the state will have power by tuesday. they have a long way to go. governor dan malloy is s
of trillion dollar deficits in washington? >> so that's mitt romney in roanoke, virginia, today. gloria, let's just look at the latest swing state polling. they're showing iowa, new hampshire, wisconsin, they're all leaning toward obama. we showed another poll yesterday showing the president leading ohio, back to ohio, by five points. point-blank, gloria borger, five days left, is time running out for mitt romney? >> sure. there's five days left f. you look out those polls, while most of them are within the margin of error, he would like to have it flipped the other way. having said that, time's also running out for the president. look. this is a tight race. it's tighter than a lot of people ever expected. it's come down to those handful of states. and what it really comes down to is getting the voters to the polls, brooke. that's why there's an emphasis on early voting because you can bus your voters who you know vote for you and get them to vote early. but it's a matter of intensity and enthusiasm and, you know, when you talk to the romney people, they're complaining the polls based on the
there are people that are really hurting today in this country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the fure generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could notare less if it's a republican or a democrat. i've done it before, i'll do it again. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. >>> welcome back. so many people, of course, posting and tweeting online as sandy gets ready to strike. and we can actually take a look now at this incoming hurricane. actually how people are using social media to really tell their stories. sandy makes her way up the east coast and now banks for landfall, it's really becoming a procession of sorts. take a look here. 4 million tweets in the last hours alone. people struck by these nasa images. this storm again, more than 1,000 miles across. and that reaches, well, all the way up the eastern seaboard. take a look. this came in from state college, pennsylvania. of course, the run on supermarkets for really the entire ea
. look at iowa, 5.2%. it's essentially full employment in iowa but they are concerned about debt, deficit and the quality of jobs you are getting. let's start with the ohio jobless rates. no gop candidate won an election without winning ohio. ohio makes presidents. today, 7% is the unemployment rate, less than when the president took office. that is better than the national average. they have been adding manufacturing jobs. not as many by any stretch of the imagination that they lost. look at florida and the trend of the jobless rate in florida. it's exactly where it was when the president took office. still higher than the national average. it has been coming down. housing is still a major issue here. in virginia, 13 electoral votes, jobless rate is low now. a 5.9% in virginia. but, it's still higher than when the president took office. essentially flat in virginia. it's going to be interesting because superstorm sandy could have an effect. power outages there. we don't know what tuesday is going to look like. that was a state affected by sandy. all of those really interesting trends, di
in the deficit. he's not. he tried to veto many of those bills. he could not because the democrats controlled congress, and so he was forced, willy-nilly, if you're going to have a budget at all--and mr. clinton is going to discover this--you just have to go along, in the end, with congress. and he did not bankrupt the country. he did--he tried to control spending. he was just in too weak a position to do so. c-span: so you just wash your hands of any of the problems today that were brought about by supply-side economics. >> guest: well, the problems ex--they weren't brought about by supply-side economics. they were brought about, i would say, by irresponsible congressional expenditures. but it doesn't matter. the problems are real. i mean, they're with us. i mean, medicare, medicaid, things that originally were thought to involve the expenditure of perhaps a few billion dollars suddenly are s--going at the rate of tens of billions of dollars, which no one really anticipated, but which a thoughtful person might have-not anticipated, but say at some point, 'we have to take another look and che
a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. it put me at ease that you could smoke on the first week. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depr
provides in order to pay for it. democrats tend to want to tax a little more for that or add to the deficit because of the emergency. >> ifill: chris christie as the governor of new jersey who the president will be traveling with tomorrow looking at hurricane damage, you can only assume that that will be many levels interpretation of that particular meeting. he said he would like to reschedule halloween but it's not possible to reschedule an election, is it? >> it is technically possible to reschedule elections on a state-by-state basis but i don't think we're going to need that. the date on which the election is held actually set by federal law rather than the constitution. congress could change that date. there's actually provision for, if a state doesn't get its vote in on time, basically for the state legislature to make a decision about which electors to send to vote for president. so there are actually ways for that to happen. i just don't think anybody is that the a point right now. >> ifill: if you're in massachusetts or connecticut and your constituents don't have power, they're no
and demonizing. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half he's doubled it. he said he would focus on jobs, instead focused on obamacare that kills jobs, he said he'd bring health insurance down $2500 a year, the cost of it for the average family. anybody here had their insurance go down 2500? as a matter of fact the average is up $3,000 per family. look, the president said that he would work across the aisle. he would meet regularly with leaders in the republican party. do you know how long it's been since he's met with the republican leader he of the house or the senate on jobs, or the teconomy or the deficit? since july, he hasn't met with them. he just has not been able to deliver on the promises he's made. talk is cheap, a record is real and takes hard work and he's not been able to accomplish it and i have a record of accomplishment and that's why i'm running. (cheers) >> as you know, i started a business, i actually helped turn around another business and help turn around the olympics and you may have heard that i was governor next door in massachusetts. massachusetts in uple of my
that the first order of business is to get our deficits and debt under control. the good thing is there's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at end of the year. we have the sequester looming. that wouldn't be the right way to do thing, takes a machete to something as opposed to a scalpel. after the election both democrats and republicans say this is something the country wants to solve. if i've won, then i believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way. >> congresscomwoman if the president wins will they have to budge to raise taxes for the super wealthy to take care the debt? >> i think it's interesting to listen to his comments. basically the president's ideas on how to deal with an economy are an empty binder, if you will. we have brought forward item after item and suggestion after suggestion and bill after bill. we've passed bipartisan legislation in the house, and the senate won't take it up. what we need to do is make certain that we extend the bush tax cuts. we also want to go about closing some of the loopholes and primarily we have to cut federal spending. fed
. so i don't think that -- someone asked me if those outside groups would make up for romney's deficit on the campaign level, and i don't think that's true. i think they're on a par or maybe even more of an advantage for democrats when you count those outside groups. host: the caller also mentioned the electoral college. and because the swing states, florida, ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, nevada, some of these, have more electoral college votes than some of the other smaller states, and the candidates are spending more time in these particular states, do you see a smaller or a larger ground game in states that don't get visited, states like washington, hawaii, california, new york, texas. those states are already in one column, or their electoral college votes are so small, do you see a bigger ground game effort to make up for the fact that the candidate just isn't going to come there? guest: no, you see almost no ground game in swings that are not swing states. now, there are some swing states that are quite small in terms of electoral votes and physical size, like new hampshire, iowa
with the debt and the deficit. i have talked to so many women who say the number one reason that they're voting for mitt romney is $16 trillion in debt. you know that i felt as if president bush and everyone has spent too much money and that the spending has to be dealt with. mitt romney has said that is a day one order for him, to work on getting that spending under control. and i think that because of that, election day you're going to see a romney win. >> marsha blackburn joining us this morning. thank you for joining us. >> good to see you. thank you. >>> coverage of election night in america we start at 6:00 pm eastern time. how about a question? not even a question. >> wow! >> wow! >> i have no power. >> i don't forgive you. ahead on "starting point" troops carrying patients down the stairs after backup power has failed at another new york city hospital. dr. sanjay gupta will join us live with that effort there. what if there was a new way to deal with money that focused less on fees and more... on what matters? maybe your bank account is taking too much time and maybe it's costing too mu
in this election. now, change is a future where we reduce our deficit in a way that's balanced and responsible. i signed $1 trillion worth of spending cuts. i intend to do more. i'll work with both parties to streamline agencies and get rid of programs that don't work, but if we're serious about the deficit, we also have to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to the tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office. because as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow this nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says wh
was answering a deficit question there. he wasn't thinking about fema at all. >> right. in fact, he tried to dodge it a little bit. >> i think that's a really crucial because to me when i think about fema and disasters i'm absolutely confronted by these two americas, the katrina/fema reaction and the sandy/fema reaction and the reality is to argue there hasn't been a significant political response to the significance of fema by different governments and it's not split down party lines. it's simply not true. there was a really great article in "mother jones" that took you through -- >> the development of fema competence. >> right. and who had headed fema and the way that presidents had appointed those fema heads were directly related to how they perceived their significance. so, for example, george bush actually allocated michael brown who was the former -- i just had to read this out, because i was just blown away. michael brown who was the former commissioner of judges and stewards for the international arabian horse association, that's who headed fema. clinton was the first -- was the f
